St. Louis County Police Eligible to Receive $91,308 In Grant Funding

Posted 51 days ago ago by News Editor

For Immediate Release


The St. Louis County Police Department is eligible to receive $91,308 in grant funding from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program. These funds will be used to purchase additional mobile data terminals for police cars which will allow officers to perform routine tasks in the field. Officers will be able to electronically receive calls for service/assignments, check for warrants on suspects, and use many of the applications developed to assist officers in doing their jobs.

Each mobile data terminal, along with its associated equipment to mount it in the police car, costs approximately $5,073.

The JAG Program assists state, tribal, and local governments in preventing and controlling crime based on local needs and conditions. JAG blends other programs together to provide agencies with the flexibility to prioritize and place justice funds where they are needed. The Department has historically used these funds to help pay for laptops for police cars.

Citizens can comment on the use of the funding by calling (314) 615-5308 or by sending a letter to the St. Louis County Police Department's Planning and Analysis Unit, 7900 Forsyth Blvd., Clayton, 63105.
